    • Modify the 80% threshold filesystem notification.

      The default behavior is for OMV to notify once used disk space reaches 80% of capacity. Many find this value too low and the frequent notifications annoying.

      To raise the notification threshold above the default 80% value, to 95% for example, perform the following:

      As the root user, edit the file: /etc/default/openmediavault and add the following line (or change it to the value you want if it already exists):


      Run the following commands as root in the shell:

      For OMV 2.x:

      /etc/init.d/openmediavault-engined restart
      omv-mkconf monit
      /etc/init.d/monit restart

      For OMV 3.x and higher:

      omv-mkconf monit
      monit reload
